The price of gold is irrelevant.

You don't have to care what the price is for it to mean something. You are looking at it from an individual standpoint. I am looking at it from a macroeconomic standpoint.

The fraud charges don't affect the earnings of the OTHER companies in the S&P.
What's your point?

The finacial earnings were expected to be up by 183% This input is not going to be there in any way like it would have with out the fraud. The belweather has changed direction. And the flock should follow.

And from that "macroeconomic" standpoint - the price of gold vs the S&P means what? It doesn't mean jack - aside from the fact that lot of people have piled into gold.

Sorry, but you are NOT looking at it from a macroeconomic standpoint. You are looking at it from a POLITICAL standpoint - and making economic judgements based on your POLITICAL philosophy.

Actually they don't affect the earnings of GS. It may, at some point, if damages are at some point clear. Until then, it may be a good time to buy some GS. But I would hesitate to pull the trigger on that, even though it may turn out to be a missed opportunity.
